It depends on how old the kid is. If they are too young then you'll have to ask yourself if you can handled taking care of another living thing.

I don't think so. I don't want the house to be a complete mess.

It would teach kids to be responsible. My daughter takes care of our dog. She likes to be involved in doing everything for Sandy.

Yes! I loved having a dog growing up and my mom would help me give her a bath and walk her when I was younger. When I turned 12, my mom refused to help out anymore.

Feeding and caring for a pet encourages childhood responsibility. It would be good for them to learn that at an early age.

I will only allow it if they promise to take responsibility for their pet.

Yes, because cuddling a pet reduces, loneliness and anxiety.

As long as they can take care of the pet properly, I don't see why not.

I agree. I will not clean up after their pets!

Walking the dog or cleaning the birdcage gives kids a sense of accomplishment. Even children as young as two can help fill the food bowl.

I think so. Having pets helps children feel empathy.

Kids with pets get outside more to go for walks, run and play with pets. It'll be good for them to go out instead of staying indoors all the time.
